      vonki: tnx, good luck to you to :f_biggrin:

      So I've decided to post my results once in two or three days of playing. Not much relevance in posting them every day.
      After two days of playing I've lost and one a few buy-ins :D

      Bankroll: $53.95

      It's much harder than I thought, plus there are those situations when u have a big hand and u manage to get it all in before or on the flop but the other player wins on the river, although I got to admit that i'ts prety fun and exciting when that happens.
      So my next post will be on Friday. Hope I'll win more buy-ins in these next two days.

      Good luck you'll at the tables and have fun :s_biggrin:

      But all in all the important thing is that I'm on + overall :f_biggrin:

      I'm back after almoste a week and I haven't play anything till yesterday. I took a pause from poker this week cuz I had some back problems( I had some pains) and my doctor said that I have something at my spine 😞
      And like that wasn't enough I also got fired this week....apparently I wasn't doing a very good job 😒.
      So now I've added a new challenge: to find a new job. And yes thats a challenge cuz its very hard to find a job this days.
      When it comes to the bnkroll challenge I've pleayed yesterday and today and it went pretty bad: from $63 I dropped to $38 😞
      Well I gess I'll work a lot more on my game and I will also play more since I have a lot of free time now.
      Next update will be on monday.

      Another thing that I've added to my daily schedule is to learn german....thats one of the things that I wanna do this year. Also today I start reading again, haven't read any book in the last cuple of years and it was something that I really loved to do.

      haha german is probably one of the toughest languages to learn. There is a ton of gramatical difficulties. I've been learning it for over a year and I still feel super lost in the grammar at times :) (it's not that you have to just learn the rules, but the rules also decide if der turns into dem or den or die turns into der and that's just some easy examples xD ) I still think you should go for it, just know that it's a bit tricky with the grammar :f_thumbsup:

      Yes it is a very difficult language but I like it and also ther are a lot of jobs (at least in Romania) where they ask u to know another language, other then English, and most of them ask you to know german.
      As for my poker challenge...
      Hands: 1900
      Profit: $6
      Bankroll: $60
